Audio-Technica Ltd. is pleased to announce the new Artist Series range of microphones, due to ship soon. Over 40 years of research and development, combined with input from leading artists and sound engineers has culminated in the rebirth of a series that now offers one of the most comprehensive selections of microphones currently available from a single manufacturer.

For the singer, the Artist Series vocal microphones set industry standards for intelligibility, detailed reproduction and noise suppression. The new versions of these critically acclaimed microphones offer broad frequency response and extremely low handling noise in an attractive, durable design that delivers outstanding performance. Handheld vocal models include the ATM710 cardioid condenser, ATM610 hypercardioid dynamic and ATM410 cardioid dynamic.

The Artist Series also includes new models optimized specifically for instruments. Tailored for clear, full-range reproduction of acoustic and amplified instruments, the Artist Series instrument microphones are designed for natural audio reproduction, and feature fast transient response, low distortion/noise, and rugged, durable construction. These mics offer crisp, clear, well-balanced response, even at high SPLs. The Artist Series instrument microphones include the ATM650 hypercardioid dynamic and ATM450 cardioid condenser along with a clip-on model, the ATM350 cardioid condenser. An example of how Audio-Technica offers direct answers to musician and engineer needs, the ATM450 is an innovative side-address stick design with endless placement options and minimal obstructions. In addition, a wide range of convenient accessories is supplied with the microphones. These include Audio-Technica’s innovative new violin mount and versatile UniMount flexible gooseneck mount (both supplied with the ATM350), and a professional isolation clamp that provides versatile positioning and effective dampening of unwanted mechanical noise (included with the ATM250, ATM250DE and ATM450).

For the drums, Audio-Technica has built on the legacy of its legendary AE2500, and introduced the new ATM250DE, a dual-element kick-drum mic that combines two perfectly positioned capsules — a cardioid condenser and hypercardioid dynamic — in a single housing. The ATM250DE is also excellent for toms, guitar and bass cabinets as well as brass and upright bass. The ATM250 hypercardioid dynamic is ideal for high SPL applications including kick drum, toms, bass, brass and upright bass, offering rich, warm low-frequency response.

Shipments of the new Artist Series in Europe, Middle East and Africa are expected to commence during September 2006.
